1 of 2 traditional stone barns set in picturesque farmland in this beautiful Angus Glen, guests can enjoy a wonderful agritourism experience.   Situated at the foot of Glenisla, this is the perfect destination to enjoy the lovely scenery and unspoilt countryside. A most attractive barn conversion, finished to an extremely high standard with its own, very unique, charm and character.

Wake up to the sights and sounds of nature whilst staying at this luxurious converted barn, nestled within acres of picturesque farmland in Angus Glen. Perfectly located at the foot of Glenisla, you have easy access to miles of unspoilt countryside, grand castles and majestic waterfalls along with nearby towns and villages with excellent amenities. Perfect for small families and up to two four-legged friends, guests here are invited to explore the on-site ‘Courtyard’ where you’ll find shopping, crafts and a coffee shop offering delicious lunches, snacks and drinks.

The property itself is a recently converted 17th-century barn that has been finished to a very high standard. Set across a single level there are no tricky stairs to contend with, making this a good option for anyone with limited mobility. The bright, light open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining room features huge glass doors at one end, that bring the outdoors in and offer views towards the countryside beyond. The modern kitchen units have been painted in muted hues that perfectly complement the rustic homely feel in this room. Two good-sized comfortable bedrooms provide a tranquil place to rest weary heads after a busy day of adventuring.

The Angus Glens are a series of tranquil valleys enjoying some of the most majestic landscapes in Scotland. The town of Kirriemuir is known as the gateway to the glens and is perhaps best known as the birthplace of Sir JM Barrie. In addition, there is a good selection of shops, cafes and coffee shops in this busy little town. The drama of Reekie Linn waterfall can be found just 7 miles from the property and rewards intrepid explorers (both two- and four-legged) with an incredible sight.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Surrounded by unspoilt countryside, nature-lovers will be in their element exploring the local area. Step out of the front door and pick up one of the many nearby trails; just 2 miles away you will reach the beautiful Glenisla Gorge and Reekie Linn Waterfall. Of course, if you fancy staying closer to home, you are welcome to explore the 650-acre farm and nearby Courtyard, which offers shopping, workshops and lots to eat! Learn a new skill and reward yourself to a delicious home-made meal created with local produce.

If you crave more fresh air, there are lots of activities to pique your interest. There are some great golf courses in the area, including Alyth Golf Club which is only 6.5 miles away. If you have a keen eye, travel the 8.5 miles to Brewlands Estate, where clay pigeon shooting is available all year round. Or, for something a little more fast-paced, try your hand at skiing or snowboarding in one of the area's resorts in winter.

Should you fancy some urban vibes for a while, the towns of Alyth and Kirriemuir are 6 and 8.5 miles away respectively and offer a huge array of things to see and do. Meanwhile, the thriving city of Dundee is 22 miles away and home to a huge number of attractions, including Discovery Point and the McManus: Dundee's Art Gallery & Museum.

We had a fantastic stay at ducklings rest, the wonderful shop and cafe beside the cottage was truly amazing. Would defiantly recommend booking the afternoon tea. The animals round the farm are just lovely and my son (aged 6) had a fantastic time feeding them and wanted to do that every day. Owners are very friendly and on hand should any issues ariRead morese, not that we had any issues at all. We will hopefully be booking again. Hide

An immaculate property, well equipped with stunning views. Our girls loved being on the farm seeing the geese, cows, horses and tractors and the tea room in the Courtyard is very handy! Lots to explore in the local area too.

The cottage was absolutely amazing, we were met by Miss Fleming who made us feel so welcome. There was stunning scenery all around and we were welcomed in with some token homemade produce. The location meant there was loads of super places to visit and was a peaceful place to return back to. We would definitely go back and will be recommending to fRead moreriends. Hide
